It's a new year, and we're excited to announce a new event series: Wellness Wednesdays! Join us on a journey of self-care and discover new ways to manage stress and uplift your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Our first workshop on Wednesday, January 17th will be a sound bath meditative experience led by Katrina of Radiance Yoga! Katrina began practicing meditation and hatha yoga over 30 years ago to help balance the stress in her life. Her goal as a teacher and practitioner is to create the space for students to feel balanced in their bodies, minds, and spirit.

On December 8 from 6-8pm, the Board of Directors of the Ten Thousand Villages, National Capital Area, will be hosting a Holiday Sip-N-Shop event at the store (915 King Street)!! Light refreshments will be served, including wine from our neighbor, Wine Gallery 108. As you may know, Ten Thousand Villages is much more than a store. It is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is creating a maker-to-market movement. By providing a storefront for artisans in economically developing countries to sell their products, Ten Thousand Villages creates opportunities for those artisans to earn much-needed income.

We're just one week away from Hanukkah! Light up your home with one of our unique menorahs. We also have a ton of delicious gelt-and everyone knows there's no such thing as too much chocolate!

Fun fact: To wish someone a happy Hanukkah, you can say "Hanukkah sameach" which means "happy Hanukkah" in Hebrew; or "chag urim sameach" (khag OO-reem SAH-meh-ahkh), which means "happy festival of lights"!

So let’s talk about approval: you can take a rug home from the Ten Thousand Villages Craft Market, Bake Sale & Rug Event “on approval” without paying for it.

We know it sounds unbelievable, but it’s true! We want you to love your rug forever and seeing it in your own space can make a difference. As long as you bring it back or purchase it before the end of the event, you don’t owe us a thing!

Bunyaad rugs will be at the Hyattsville Mennonite Church TOMORROW. Sleep tight and see you in the morning!

High traffic and messy areas - like bathrooms - are no match for the high-quality wool used in Bunyaad rugs.
The secret? Lanolin! 🐑
The wool in Bunyaad rugs is mostly from local Pakistani farmers and supports local sheep herders. The extra fat pack on the dumba sheep's tail is full of lanolin and oils that help to keep Bunyaad rugs shockingly stain resistant. ✅ Bathroom approved.

These rugs will be at the Hyattsville Mennonite Church at the Ten Thousand Villages Craft Market, Bake Sale & Rug Event this Friday and Saturday.

Education opens up opportunities for children in places where opportunity can be scarce. Bunyaad has built schools in artisan communities across Pakistan. When you buy a rug, you’re supporting education for children!
